Dear Chapel Family,
As Travis communicated in his email to our family of faith yesterday, in order to both seek the welfare of the city and remain connected as a body, we will move this Sunday’s worship service to an online format. This service will be available at wcchapel.org/worship tomorrow at 9am. Although we will not be worshipping in the same physical space, we can still worship together this weekend.
Staying connected during this time requires intentionality. In addition to our Chapel-wide emails, we will also be sending out text updates to alert our Chapel family of important and time-sensitive information. I invite you to sign up to receive those updates by texting CHAPELNEWS to the number 41411. This is a newly created text communication list that is different from our other text lists many of you have previously joined. For more detailed instructions, as well as to see a list of all our communication tools, please visit wcchapel.org/communications.
During this challenging time for our world and our community, our staff team remains committed to keeping our family of faith updated and connected. I ask that, as members of this expression of the Body of Christ, you would also help us pass along the important updates regarding worship opportunities and new methods of communication. Remind your small group, friends, and neighbors to sign up to receive both our Chapel-wide emails and our CHAPELNEWS text alerts, or forward them this email to help us spread the word. As always, our home page, wcchapel.org, is a great place for people to visit whenever they have a question about our services, programming, or how to get connected to Christ and His community at our church.
Throughout the week, our desire has been to communicate that love is the reason we are changing our behavior. As we continue our series on the 4 Gospels, I am reminded of Jesus’ words to His followers on the night He was betrayed: “A new commandment I give you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34-35). It is our prayer that the world would see Jesus more clearly as we serve each other and love our community in new and tangible ways during these challenging times.
Looking forward to worshipping with you online tomorrow,
Associate Pastor/Connect Team Leader
